WHAT IS THE SCHOOL/SCHEDULE LIKE?: Suwon Global Village (or SWGV) is an English Village, this means we don't teach our students in a normal 'classroom' styled way. No boring books and repeating words over and over. ALSO NO HOMEWORK!!! We have theme rooms such as; Airplane, Kitchen, Science Lab, Mart, TV Studio and Computer Lab. The students learn English in these classrooms doing role-plays, fun activities and playing interactive games. We believe that by experiencing English in this kind of environment allows our students to not only learn more effectively but to feel comfortable in doing so. There is no pressure. SWGV prides itself on having teachers that work together to create exciting and interactive lessons. We do everything from creative art lessons to large lectures about the environment or exciting science experiments. Students don't come every week, there is always a new flow of faces and this keeps the work exciting. No two days are ever the same. We also host many exciting events for the holidays such as Christmas and Halloween. So, if you enjoy a fun, fresh work atmosphere, then we are who you are looking for!
WHO DO WE TEACH?: We teach all ages, you're never too young or old to learn. 20% of the teaching is with kindergarten. There are no books at SWGV, we make all our lessons how WE want them. We have the ability to design what we teach. We do creative art lessons with the kindergartners as well as more structured storytelling classes or song and chant. 60% is with elementary and we use the themed rooms and our gym for physical games. We also have a theater to play game shows and give engaging lectures. The remaining 20% is filled with the middle school, high school and adult learners. New teachers will not be asked to teach adults but it's possible in the future if you WANT to teach them. The middle and high school students follow a similar schedule to elementary with the lessons being altered to suit their age and English ability.
IS THERE PREP TIME?: Because our teachers create most of what they teach, teachers have PLENTY of prep time. Depending on the monthly schedule, teachers will have 1-2 days of NO STUDENTS so they can relax and prepare for their future classes. We respect our staff and understand the work it takes to make a great lesson. There also must be time for demonstration classes too.
ARE THERE CAMPS?: Yes. We have Summer and Winter camps lasting around 3-4 weeks each. Sometimes the camps run over the normal working hours and so we pay 20,000 KRW overtime per hour. This teaching job is great for someone who has camp counseling experience.
WHAT IS THE APARTMENT LIKE?: The apartments are very new and of good size. They have flat screen TV's, washing machines, GAS stove (no hot plates), queen sized beds, floor heating, great showers and code doors meaning no key needed. Landlord speaks English. All the teachers live in the same building.
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?: Honestly, personality is the most important thing to us. We look for energetic teachers who are looking for something fun and creative. We need people who like working in an exciting environment. We have an array of engaging teachers who come from a variety of exciting backgrounds. We NEED people who can work in a team but who can also show initiative and get things done.
